#### Breathing Room

Source Institutions

In this health activity, learners explore breathing, lungs and asthma. Learners test their lung capacity by blowing air into balloons.

#### Get a Leg Up

Source Institutions

In this activity, learners experiment and collect data during a simulation of the fluid shifts experienced by astronauts' bodies in microgravity.

#### Can I Get Some Pi?

Source Institutions

In this activity, learners will explore pi and the mathematical relationships between a circle's diameter, circumference, and radius.

#### Pi Graph

Source Institutions

In this activity, learners use a straight line to learn about circles. Learners measure and record the diameter and circumference of different sized cylindrical objects on a chart.

#### Amphibian Skin

Source Institutions

In this activity, learners explore the concept of permeability to better understand why amphibians are extremely sensitive to pollution.

#### The Shadow Knows II

Source Institutions

In this activity, learners will measure the length of a shadow and use the distance from the equator to calculate the circumference of the earth.

#### That's the Way the Ball Bounces: Level 1

Source Institutions

In this activity, learners prepare four polymer elastomers and then compare their physical properties, such as texture, color, size, and bounce height.

#### Avogadro's Bubbly Adventure

Source Institutions

In this activity on page 7 of the PDF, learners investigate the solubility of gas in water at different temperatures. This experiment will help learners determine if temperature affects solubility.

#### Tree Trunk Diameter to Branch Height Relationship

Source Institutions

In this activity (located on page 2 of the PDF under GPS: Temperate Rain Forest Activity), learners will identify a group of deciduous trees to study.

#### Colors of Stars

Source Institutions

In this activity, learners observe colors in the flame of a burning candle to explore connections between matter, light, color and temperature -- basic concepts of matter and energy.

#### Cylinders and Scale

Source Institutions

In this activity, learners investigate the relative growth of lengths, areas, and volumes as cylinders are scaled up.

#### Applying Math to Astronomy

Source Institutions

In this mathematics activity (page 4 of the PDF), learners will explore the relationship between the diameter and circumference of an object.

#### Elephant Foot

Source Institutions

Using a real-size sketch of a baby elephant's footprint, learners estimate, measure and record the width (diameter) and outside edge length (perimeter or circumference) of the footprint.

#### Cutting Pi

Source Institutions

In this activity, learners use a string and pair of scissors to find pi in the world all around them. Take the circumference of a round object with string and cut the string to that length.

#### Measurement: Bubble Mania

Source Institutions

In this math lesson, learners practice measurement skills as they examine a soap bubble print. Learners follow a recipe to make a soap bubble solution.

#### The Shadow Knows I

Source Institutions

In this activity, learners will measure the length of their shadow from the Sun and compare it three to four months later.

#### Space Stations: Measure Up!

Source Institutions

In this activity, learners work in pairs to measure each other's ankles with lengths of string.

#### Up, Up, and Away

Source Institutions

In this math lesson, learners explore the real world meaning of slope. Learners conduct a balloon experiment in which they measure the circumference and flight time of deflating balloons.

#### Size, Mass, Area, and Volume

Source Institutions

In this activity (page 23 of PDF), learners conduct an experiment to determine how the size and mass of a projectile affects the area and the volume of an impact crater.

#### Soccer Kicks

Source Institutions

This activity (on page 2 of the PDF under SciGirls Activity: Soccer Ball Kick) is a full inquiry investigation into transfer of motion.
